What is it?
Mini Macro Organic and Macro Organic beef products. Includes Beef Mini Meatballs, Beef Mini Sausages, Beef Sausages and Beef Burgers.
Made from certified organic Australian beef supplied by the Arcadian Organic Meat Company. According to their website their certified organic beef is “100% free from hormone growth promotants (HGPs), free from genetic modification (GM free), antibiotics and all other synthetic chemicals, and our farmers do not use feedlots to raise their livestock.”
How does it taste?
My family love the meatballs. I cook them up in a simple tomato-based sauce and serve them over a bed of risoni (small rice-shaped pasta) for a quick and easy mid-week dinner. They also love the sausages but found the burgers a bit on the dry side.
Sure these products are processed and shouldn’t necessarily be an everyday food choice but their convenience is a big plus and when you compare them to the equivalent non-organic product in the supermarket they don’t contain preservatives or artificial flavours, which is a bonus.
